On the Local Food and Drink Culture cooking course, everyone can prepare something on a given menu. You will learn how to make drinks from the high-quality products of the Lignell & Piispanen distillery and winery and get a glimpse of the secrets of the manor's kitchen.

The group will be divided in two, one making aperitifs for the group under guidance, the other preparing the hors d'œuvres. The main course is prepared by the manor's chefs. One of the groups will take part in preparing the dessert, while the others make drinks to go with it.
